Its main selling feature is that it is ruggedized to military standard MIL-STD-810G. As of May 2011[update], it is the first retail-available smartphone so certified. Thus, it is stronger and more durable than normal consumer electronics, similar in concept to the Motorola DEFY, but certified tougher. The phone should be able to handle drops, spills and dirt that accompany physically demanding activities such as those in harsh work environments or outdoors. At one publication, technicians tested this phone and more recently, the updated model, G'zOne Commando 4G LTE. They found both models "rugged"; and describe no ill effects after randomly dropping G'zOne Commando 4G LTE, and submerging it under water for half an hour.
The phone was released with the Android 2.2.1 Froyo operating system, but an upgrade to Android 2.3.3 is now mandatory.
Some reviewers have criticized the phone's styling and aesthetics as unattractive.
